(#& “A Date Which Will Live in Infamy”:

On December 7, 1941 an event occurred that changed history. This post is not a political commentary, just posted as a remembrance of those brave men and woman that paid the ultimate price that day. Never should their sacrifice be forgotten. Nor should the sacrifices of many other nations before and after this event.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt: Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our secretary of state a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday the Japanese government also launched as attack against Malaya.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Wake Island.
And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.
As commander in chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. . .

Our veterans of this incident are getting older, and soon we may not have any with us. Please take some time, remember them, their sacrifices and those that are no longer with us.

I still wonder why Japan attacked Pearl Harbour only for America to enter the war against Japan. It seemed like an own goal, and a very sad one at that.

My Dad enlisted in the Navy in July of '41 at the age of 17. Spent '43-'45 in the South Pacific. His little brother faked his age and was a marine on Iwo Jima

Its a day that none of us will never forget. I did forget about it though until I got here, because I have had a busy morning running errands. So here's to everyone that we have lost, and those who have served and still are serving..Less we never forget this day and those families who lost loved ones on this tragic day in history.

I hope you enjoy your Tuesday..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Definitely was a terrible day for the U.S. God bless those who were hurt and died in defense of our land/country. They were brave souls who did the job with courage.
